The holiday season can present challenges for some survivors of sexual abuse and incest. RAINN support specialists who operate the National Sexual Assault Hotline share strategies for survivors to feel safe during this time.
Bragging or joking about sexual violence is offensive and unacceptable. “Any language that condones sexual assault, no matter where it takes place, is not okay,” said Jodi Omear, RAINN’s vice president for communications.
A new national poll conducted by The Washington Post and Kaiser Family Foundation finds that both men and women identify reducing sexual violence as their top priority in order to improve the lives of women.
